Badly burned girl who lost family in arson attack asks world to send her a card this Christmas

A little girl who was badly burnt in a fire that killed her father and siblings wants one thing for Christmas greetings cards. Safyre Terry has appealed online for the world to share the special day with her, as her own family is no longer around to do so.

In 2013 Safyre’s home in Schenectady, New York was destroyed by arson, killing her father David Terry and three younger siblings.

The little girl only survived the blaze because her father shielded her with his body.

She suffered burns on more than 75% of her body, has had more than 50 operations and subsequently lost her right hand and left foot.

Her aunt Liz Dolder told BuzzFeed News Safyre continues to have problems with her mouth due to the scar tissue tightening up and will have her next operation on January 5.

I do hope the world is listening to this little heart. Our heart is with you dear.
